Pinnacle Education, Inc. was founded in 1995, by Dr. Michael Matwick, as an educational development program for students struggling in the traditional high school setting. Our goal is to provide computer-assisted instruction with social skill training and workplace development. In 1998, Pinnacle Education became the first charter school in Arizona and opened a second high school in the East Valley. After only one year, the success of the program, and growth of the student body prompted Pinnacle Education to open additional schools and to offer its unique education via the Internet. Pinnacle Education, Inc. is fully accredited by both CITA and NCA. Today, Pinnacle Education continues to operate five brick-and-mortar schools while providing high school education to more than 10,000 students virtually each year and has expanded its business to include education services to schools and school districts across the United States.
